New year, new plays!
We’re starting 2018 as we mean to go on: putting playwrights and new plays at the heart of everything we do. We’ve got our day-long PlayBox Takeover at HOME’S PUSH Festival on Saturday 20 January.
Join us for a creative day of new plays and conversations: we have a Writers’ Breakfast for aspiring playwrights, three Rehearsed Readings of new plays from our PlayBoxers and a Workshop on Touring New Work. Both events are FREE and readings are just £3 each. Tickets are selling fast, so be sure to book now if you haven’t done so already!
We’re delighted to announce a crack cast of local talent for our Rehearsed Readings. Meet the actors…
